"It was a pleasure to use your design of the 20” cross. I did take some liberties with your plan due to limited availability of different species of woods.I chose to use pine and various stain colors to achieve the look of different wood colors. Since I made the cross I have located a source for a variety of wood species (in small inexpensive quantities) should I decide to construct another one."
Fantastic work, John. Brilliant execution with limited resources—The stained version has the same allure as the mixed-wood versions with a fraction of the cost!
